I have been looking at this bloody screen for a while now. Of course I have also been procrastinating by clicking back to facebook, pottering around and finding music playlists on YouTube. Does anyone else do this? I can't even clean my kitchen or have a bath without a 'task appropriate' playlist. This evening I… Continue reading Taking A Break
I am aware that I did not go to University to become a trained Nurse but one thing that really grinds my gears is when an ignorant Issac or a stuck up Sally says to me - 'oh, you're just a Health Care Assistant'. Well, yes I am a Health Care Assistant. I currently work in a… Continue reading ‘Just’ a Health Care Assistant
I know you are hurting, but everything is going to be okay. I promise. Your world has been flipped upside down.You feel completely out of control and the sadness and agony is probably like nothing you have ever experienced.

Definitions of 'guilt' in the dictionary include 'remorseful awareness of having done something wrong or violating a rule' and a… Continue reading Mummy Guilt
It is my beautiful Mum's birthday and I wanted to write a quick post about how much she means to me. I won't be seeing her today as she is WAY too busy sunning herself in Tenerife (so selfish of course!) I came into this earth when Mumsy was only SEVENTEEN years old. Now that… Continue reading Happy Birthday Mumsy!
'Family - where life begins and love never ends.' I still remember clear as day, my Nan looking over to the wall sticker quote I put up in my dining area, shaking her head and saying "Oh Rox. Ironic hey.." She had popped in to see me shortly after my partner walked out and… Continue reading Sharing my children
Welcome to my first blog post. Sat here with my laptop cross legged on the sofa, kiddies in bed, fiancé sprawled next to me suffering from man-flu and e-cig on stand by (terrible/occasional habit)... I begin. For years I have followed and enjoyed all types of blogs, mostly mummy/parenting pages. Reading to gain advice, laugh… Continue reading First blog post/Introduction
